This hike was great. A buddy and I spent a couple extras days up here and the surrounding area hiking castle peak and basin. Proceeded down to paradise to camp for the night before visiting Warren early on in the day then rock climbing up into devils oven. (Much more difficult then anticipated). From
There we hiked up and out of devils oven and found the Warren lake trail witch we used to loop back around the backside of basin and castle peak before finding our way back to our car across from boreal

Beautiful place although there was a bear cub on the trail at one point.

It was really lovely during fall, with golden aspen, the babbling creek and blue sky with big storm clouds. It was enjoyed by both advanced hikers and those who never hike in our party. I would def. recommend it.

Nice, fairly flat trail. Great views along the creek, especially once out of the woods.

5.5 mies with 1220 ft elevation increase. Pretty Moderate to strenuous at times. It is well worth the hike to the top for the gorgeous views of Donner Lake and the area! Portapotty at the trailhead. Bring water. Several dogs on the trail. Great hike!
